FMS Alumni Association (future)

The Facilities Management Alumni Group will be designed to provide former students of the Facilities Management School (FMS) with a repository of information to assist them in their day to day workplace activities.  Additionally, the group will provide a platform for students to continuously collaborate with one another and discuss how they have effectively problem solved issues within their facility and how that can translate to improving the entire VA facilities management (FM) enterprise. As the FMS Alumni evolves, the alumni group will provide a place where FM staff can access resources that directly apply to FM.  The alumni group will strive to be a force of change within the Department of Veterans Affairs facilities management workforce, applying the best practices of FM to help transform the VA organization.
